Black Beans are Magical! High Protein, High Fiber, and Gluten Free!

Black Beans are pretty amazing in terms of health benefits.  They have a whopping 15g of protein and 15g of Fiber in 1 cup! It’s recommended that Women get 25g of Fiber daily, but most women are not getting this much in their diet.   When I checked my daily fiber intake, I was only at about 15g and was really surprised!!  Track your Fiber for a day or two and see how you stack up. 

Black beans are a great source of Fiber, especially if you are eating a gluten free diet and may not be getting fiber from grains.  Try my Easy Brazilian Black Beans or Chickpea & Black Bean Cakes with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce or my Creamy Cajun Beans & Cauliflower over Quinoa for a few other great way to make these!

The best part about these is that you can make tons right on sheet pans and let people take as many as they want. Then you can save whatever is left to warm up later. Yum and yum again!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS COOKING KIT

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Here are the steps you prepare in the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit… (See the recipe below for more details)

The beans are the first component that you can completely prepare ahead and then reheat.  These are simply blended in a mini food processor with a garlic clove, chili powder, cumin, and water.  I love mine with some texture, so I pulse until its a nice mix and there are no huge chunks of garlic.  After blending, you will cook the beans on the stove for about 10-15 minutes until all of the flavors are melded together.

While the beans cook, you can make the tomato sauce, thinly slice the scallions and chop the cilantro. 
On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the black beans, cheese, the cilantro, tomato sauce, the uncooked tortillas, and Eggs. Store your ‘Kit’ in the fridge!¬†¬†

COOK YOUR HUEVOS TOSTADAS 

When you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge and Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan. You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches. Spray or brush the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top.  Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side. Bake in oven center rack for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center. When the tortillas are done, you can place them on paper towel or pat them down to soak up excess oil.

While the tortillas are in the oven, warm the tomato sauce up in a covered saucepot on stove. Warm the beans up in microwave or on stove.

Preheat a large skillet on high heat and spray with extra virgin olive oil. Then add 4 eggs at a time and sprinkle the top with salt and pepper. Cook just until the bottom sets, about 1-2 minutes, then flip over gentle and remove the skillet from the heat.  For little kids you can of course swap these with scrambled eggs. 

Now comes the assembly. First, spread a layer of black beans on the tortillas and then top with a fried egg.  Next drizzle the tomato sauce and add a sprinkle of cheese, then scallions, and cilantro.

Tostadas are great because you can top them with just about anything you want.  Traditionally, they are topped with refried pinto beans and cheese, so I wanted to stick somewhat close to that, but venture out a bit.

Refried beans are quite literally beans that are fried two times.  They are first cooked and then mashed and cooked again.  My version takes a couple short cuts to save on time.  I suggest buying canned cooked beans and then putting all of the ingredients into a food processor and blending them up with the beans before cooking them in a skillet.  (Check out my SHOP Page for the mini food processor that I literally cannot live without as it makes my life so much easier!)  I also went with Black Beans since I just really love them and we always have them them in the house for a variety of recipes.  EASY!  DELICIOUS!

Ok, now on to the prep!

PREP-AHEAD TO MAKE YOUR COOKING ‚ÄėKIT‚Äô

We are all extremely busy and making dinner during the week can be overwhelming. Prepping meals ahead can make ALL the difference!  So, here are the steps you can do the day(s) in advance and store in the fridge as your meal Kit…

(See the recipe below for more details)

  • I love to buy pre-sliced mushrooms, but if you have whole, then slice them in advance and saute them ahead as well.¬† These too can be reheated when ready to assemble the tostadas.

  • The beans can be entirely made ahead of time and stored in the fridge.¬† Simply warm them up on the stove when ready to use.

  • The Cilantro Lime Cream…yep, this too can be made ahead!!
  • Shred the Manchego cheese using the large side of a shredder and place in storage bag. For the Cheese, I went with Manchego, which is a bit nuttier than a standard cheddar and has a deeper flavor that pairs so incredibly with mushrooms.¬† Manchego generally comes in 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month aged varieties.¬† I like the 6-month because it is firmer the more it ages, the flavor is more intense and the price is a bit easier on the wallet than the 12-month, but any of these will do!
  • Slice the radishes and any other garnishes that you like to add ahead too.
  • Wow, you have practically made this entire dish ahead, so on a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the refried black beans, the mushrooms, the Cilantro Lime Cream, the radishes, the cilantro, extra Lime wedges, and the tortillas (wait to bake these on the night of the meal).

COOK YOUR MEAL:
  • On the night you‚Äôre ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge!
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan.¬†¬†Spray both sides of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top.¬† Place the sheet pans in the oven on the center rack and cook for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center.
  • While the tortillas are in the oven, you can be reheating your beans and mushrooms.
  • Now comes the assembly.¬† First, spread a layer of black beans on the tortillas and top with Manchego Cheese.

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray

Mushrooms

  • 8 oz White Button Mushrooms, Sliced
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray
  • Salt
  • Fresh Ground Pepper

Tortillas

  • 12 Corn Tortillas
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder sprinkled over each tortilla
  • Salt

Other

  • 8 oz Manchego Cheese, Shredded
  • 1 oz Cilantro
  • 5 Radishes

Instructions

Prep-Ahead

  1. To a preheated hot medium-large skillet, spray a coating of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Then add your sliced mushrooms, salt, and pepper.  Spread out into an even layer as best as you can and then let them sit (don't stir) for 2-3 minutes or until the bottoms are seared and the natural sugars create this delicious brown edge.  Then mix them up so that the other side is face down and gets a nice sear.  They will reduce in size so that all mushrooms can now get some pan surface.  

  2. Drain and rinse the can of black beans.  Add them to a food processor with with 1/4 cup water, 1 clove of garlic, and the cumin.  Pulse to mince the garlic and blend up the beans.

  4. After blending, add the beans to the same skillet used for the mushrooms; there is no need to clean off, as its all great flavor in there! Just make sure the pan is hot again and add another light coating of Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray. Stir the beans around as they cook so as not to burn. Turn the heat down to med-low and cook for 10 minutes so that the moisture cooks off and the beans get nice and thick.
  5. Zest the entire lime, then quarter it.  Place 3 of the quarters in a storage bag.  Finely chop 1 Tbls of cilantro for the cream and put off to the side.  Then rough chop another 3-4 tbls of cilantro for garnish and place in storage bag.

  6. To a small mixing bowl, add the sour cream, the lime zest, the juice from one quarter of the lime, the 1 Tbls finely chopped cilantro, and the salt.  Mix to combine, then cover and store in the fridge.

  7. Since Manchego generally doesn't come shredded, you can shred it ahead of time using the large side of the grater.  Place the cheese in a storage bag for the fridge.

  8. Finally, wash and thinly slice the radishes.  Place these in a storage bag.

  9. On a sheet pan or in a large bowl, place the refried black beans, the mushrooms, the Cilantro Lime Cream, the radishes, the cilantro, extra Lime wedges, and the tortillas (wait to bake these on the night of the meal).

Time to Cook:

  1. On the night you’re ready to cook, pull your KIT out from the fridge!
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

  3. Place the tortillas flat on a sheet pan.  Try to fit as many as you can without overlapping them.  Its ok if they touch, but if they are laying on top of each other they will not get crisp in those places.  You will likely need 2 pans to cook the tortillas or you can do them in batches.  

  4. Spray the top of each tortilla with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then sprinkle salt and Chili Powder over top.  Then flip the tortillas over and do the same to the other side.  Place the sheet pans in the oven on the center rack and cook for 10 minutes one side, then flip the tortillas over and cook for another 10-15 minutes on the other side until they are crisp all the way to the center.
